Whilst we regret that we cannot meet the high level of substantiation required by the ASA for Kinesio Taping and are disappointed at their ruling, we would contend that the widely seen use of Kinesio Taping by elite sports people throughout the world and the rapidly growing use of taping by many health professionals on a regular basis, is testimony to the benefit that Kinesio taping can have for some patients in aiding the treatment of certain medical conditions.
In conclusion, there was little quality evidence to support the use of KT over other types of elastic taping in the management or prevention of sports injuries. KT may have a small beneficial role in improving strength, range of motion in certain injured cohorts and force sense error compared with other tapes, but further studies are needed to confirm these findings. The amount of case study and anecdotal support for KT warrants well designed experimental research, particularly pertaining to sporting injuries, so that practitioners can be confident that KT is beneficial for their athletes."
I had looked at these athletes, saw the blue stripes, and assumed that they had tattoos that NBC did not want to broadcast. I thought this must just be computer generated masking.
